A premium control platform in three months’ time
Pressure cooker start
“Cooperating with Hike One has yielded wonderful results. At the yacht show in Monaco we were the 'talk of the town' in a good way. Both new and existing customers have put in many requests.”

Personalising the experience
Shortcut to most used applications on board
Previously, every light switch, heater, and volume button had to be operated manually. We connected all appliances to the system and developed a feature that allows for a complete systems check from the ship’s deck, a cabin, or even on shore.
Creating bespoke environments and soundscapes
Yacht owners no longer have to call Tech Support anymore to create their favourite entertainment and lighting scenarios. The new interface takes them through the process step-by-step, so they can create presets to match their every mood in minutes.
An interface that guarantees high quality
The user interface had to align with the luxurious appearance and accompanying price tag of these super yachts. We needed to set a standard with the right balance and hierarchy, so that future yacht owners would feel at home.
400 icons in 4 days
The interface changes came with a whole new range of icons, for instance for opening and closing windows or curtains, and for moving the television set up and down. With an average of 100 units per day, the visual design team managed to create an immense number of icons that were implemented in the system.
“Pivot looks premium and is easy to use: we’re happy to have delivered such a professional user experience in a relatively short period of time”
